Below you will find resources to use in your Tribe. Feel free to use some or all of the resources, the big idea is that we are growing in our connection with God.
1. Can you remember a time when someone was quick to listen to you - your opinion or point of view? How did it change the course of your conversation?
2. Jesus was less concerned with being right and more interested in reconciling people to God and reconciling us to one another. Discuss how these characteristics could help guide your most difficult conversations.
Me & My Big Mouth Video #1: Quick to Listen
Discussion Questions PDF
Don't settle for being right. Make things right. That's what your heavenly Father did for you through Jesus. People who were nothing like him liked him. Not because he demanded to be right all the time(even though he could have). People liked Jesus because they felt he understood them. Who are you trying to be right at instead of right with? This week try to find ways to try to understand their point of view.
This week we started a new series called, Me & My Big Mouth and Dan shared with us the importance of being quick to listen.
We all know what it's like to be hurt by someone who just couldn't listen long enough to understand us. Maybe in their attempt to be right, they damaged a relationship that could have been saved with a little patience and curiosity. You've probably been on the other side of that coin too. Taking the verbal offense may have won the argument, but you lost relationally. What if we didn't settle for being right, but tried to make things right instead? The longer we listen, the more we learn, and the better chance we have of protecting ourselves from our big mouths.
19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. (James 1:19-20 NIV)
